Non-specific pages do not need to be included in both (nor should they).  I
suggest that the primary wiki will always be ubuntu as this is the distro and
that's where people will look (especially for non-specific pages).  It's the
kubuntu specific information that should reside in it's own wiki (if at all)
with plenty of references to return to the ubuntu wiki for more general

Fair enough.  I totally agree it's more work and complication, and maybe not
worth it.  But we should stop pretending to be a kubuntu wiki by applying a
kde theme.  Re-skinning an existing wiki is just plain wrong, bordering on fraud.
